Innovation has always been part of the formula for success at Heavy Seas Beer. From the day that Hugh Sisson founded Clipper City Brewing to Hugh Sisson’s evolving Clipper City into Heavy Seas Beer, creativity, experimentation and innovation has been a core principal to this incredible brewery.
Last summer, I got together with Brewmaster and Operations Manager, Chris Leonard and took a look at Heavy Seas’ newest concept: a 15 barrel brewing system that would allow Heavy Seas to release new and different small batch craft beers on a regular basis. Until just a month ago, all of those beers were only available on draft. But last month, Heavy Seas announced the first can release from The 15 Barrel Brewhouse, a hazy, juicy IPA brewed with tangerines called Joose Cannon. It was a monstrous success, selling out almost immediately and it was delicious!
Today, The 15 Barrel Brewhouse at Heavy Seas is releasing Sun Blink, a raspberry/lemon sour. I caught up with Chris Leonard earlier this week and talked about Sun Blink.

The quality control at Heavy Seas is among the best in brewing. Sun Blink Raspberry Lemon Sour is an excellent sour and will be gone, as Chris just said, in probably 24 hours. It’s available only at the Heavy Seas taproom, in 16 ounce 4-packs or in growlers and crowlers. If you like sours, you’ll love Sun Blink Raspberry Lemon Sour from Heavy Seas!
